We would need at least 2xDMs if you want to include N'Dombele :D

I would agree if you are talking about N'Dombele that actually cares. And I'm not all that old school when it comes to effort, but I do expect players to at least try.

I would argue Lo Celso got treated "worse" than N'Dombele early on this season, but quite astonishing to see the difference in their approach to things. Doesn't mean I don't think N'Dombele can get there, but most likely he won't. A new DM and Winks is my guess. Still OK to me even if it isn't as mouth watering as the idea of a N'Dombele that plays the way he should.

I'm going to be patient with Ndombele. He did have a groin injury which can go on for ages so hopefully he's over that now and get on with it. Dier is a good comparison. He was pretty dreadful at the start of the season after illness and injury but now looks like a new man with plenty of energy and drive. Hope Ndombele makes it because he's phenominally talented

Get some proper cover for Kane and our forward line looks very strong, loads of options and different styles of player. Berg Winn is looking like a proper bargain at the moment.

I haven't given up, but I never, even when he looked lazy, questioned Dier's attitude. Huge difference for me. Same with Sissoko. Or Winks for that matter.

Doesn't mean I can't accept that some players need a bit more TLC to perform. That is fine, but there is a limit. I hope N'Dombele stays for at least one more year, but at this point I would be more surprised if he actually did succeed at Spurs than that he didn't.

Bergwijn just come back from injury started against united.. rotation in this period is key. Think he’ll start against sheff United! I’d like to see Bergwijn on the left and Son on the right. Bergwijn picks the ball up and just goes at players, think son be better in a more inside forward role closer to Kane. It’s now on moura to improve! Moura Bergwijn Lamela dele are all competing to get in the side. Finally some depth

A few more additions like Lo Celso and Bergwijn (and N'Dombele who will surely come good?!) and I think we're going places. All three of those guys have immense potential. Hopefully the Kanes, Winks, Skipps, Tanganas etc become the lads that ground us to the club and push us on.

I think he’ll do well against Sheffield United. Good at tracking back and helping out his fullback and doesn’t look to mind that hard work side of the game. Plus will be instrumental at getting in the gaps between the centrebacks quickly when we need to advance up the pitch. Will be key in that game.

He has the ability to make the right decision at the right time. The Dutch football philosophy runs through his veins.
